What really helped was having a car available to me when the boyfriend was working. Long story short, we got a stick-shift car earlier this year and I still haven't taken the time to learn to drive it so... I have no car when the boyfriend works at nights and on the weekends. As much as I love our Infiniti, I want my freedom back, too!
But this past week my parents were out of town so I used their car. I got to the gym Saturday night and did a nice treadmill-elliptical-stairmaster cycle and Sunday I went on a hike by myself which was really nice!
So now I'm wondering if it's worth it for me to get my own car. Not just for the gym factor, but think it's just time for me to get my own. We've shared a car for a while since I work days and he works nights but before we had a manual car, I would use the car a lot to go gym at night before I pick up my boyfriend from work. Right now I calculated that our $30 monthly gym membership costs us $5 each gym session since we only make it about 6 times a month! So NOT worth it! It's something I'm thinking about so we'll see...
